Listen to any old driver of a South African bakkie, and they will tell you how reliable and resilient those vehicles were. Like 74-year-old Gerhard du Toit from Oudtshoorn who has clocked over a million kilometres on his Isuzu bakkie.

With full-size seven-seat capacity, the luxurious X7 is the largest ever production machine in the BMW line-up.

In celebration of Heritage Day 2019, Ford South Africa commissioned a team from its own Paint Shop at the Silverton Assembly Plant in Pretoria to #BringIt.
